For the American,
' Fourth .Congressional District. .
Mit. Kditor, I bavo been trying (and
hnpo with some degrco of auccc,) to d'i
vect myself of all personal feeling upon
the subject of eelccting tho Union candi
date lor Congress in the Fourth District.
Thero acema to be a degrco of bitterness
in various parts of. tho District towards
each of tho .gentlemen ' named as candi
dates for tho nomination, that is truly in
cxplic,ablo PJ deplorable. Kithcr of ihe
gentlemen named, at lco?t Iho most prom
incut -Col. J. II. Farnnhar, Hon. 11. W.
Julian and Gen. Tom lion nett -are men
of talent and of tho highest respectability;
I could vote for either with great good
will; and it ia to bo hoped that a more
kindly spirit will prevail, and that due
deference will be paid to iho opinion of
thoo who advocate the claims of their fa
vorite candidates. ' This tolerance of opin
ion Ti due from each Republican to every
otlor, and it should be granted in a kind-
iyViriff for we arc all aiming at the lauu
re;fTn.l mre all equally fighting tho en
emies of freedom and icpublicau institu
tion!. . 1
I havo no doubt that Col. Farquhar is
the favorite candidato of the Union voters
of Franklin County, and it is presumable
that our Delegate will continue to vote
(or him in Convontion so long as there
ttay.lr any hop) of his nomination. All
foliticll calculations I have found to be
tery uncertain, nnd it may bo found inj
fusible to fiominute him. In that event
the rjucHiou comes up, For whom hall
we vote?
I I have not tbe leant disposition in the
world to dictate to my Ilcpublican friends
of Franklin County how they shall vote
is ra'e they cannot-nominate their first
eioico. Hut there can bo no objection to
my tilling them thnt 'tv nnt choice, do
eidedly, is Judjjo J. M. WiUon. Jude
Wilson, in point of talent end character,
is ffjuol to any of the gentlemen named.
He II a very popular man, Ins been no
office seeker, is not now a candidato for
the aoniinatioa ; but being good Itepub-
Kenn, I hire no doubt I e would feel him
solf booad to accept the nomination if
tendered to him voluntarily and without
any solirltalion on bii part.
I have always believed that it would be
a vfixcr policy to confer our otTicci upon
thojio who do n4 seek them, than upon
thofcc who tin. Dion.
LETTER FORM MINNESOTA,
Dar Ainrn'i'on, I.at Winter was a
very pteasant one In Minnesota. Thero

tcr has scarcely been up tu tho freezin;

since i lianksLMvm". Un tho J'Jth and
loth of January, tho mercury sunk to
-IU degrees below, and froze, while spirit
thermometers indicated tho atonihim:
coldness of 4C degrees below xerol Think
of that, you who cannot go to church,
and can hardly go out to feed your cuttle,
when the temperature is ten below, let
o-o one of those dsys (Sabbath, Pith Jan.,)
I rode 11 miles, and preached at two places
tevcu miles opait in tho country, to
larso congregations. And I did not
sutler seriously from tho cold. Women
were at meeting who had walked, some
of them, nearly a milo. I ho next morning,
(Monday,) the temperature still forty
live or fix below, our 250 .school children
and young folks were in their places, al
most without an exception. Little iils
who live vomo distance from the school,
camo with the down on thoir checks white
with frost.
List Sabbath I bad a hard day. One
of my appointments was 13 miles distant,
making -0 miles for tho trip. I set out
just al ter sum ist, the mercury Ü5 degrees
below zero, and a sharp wind in my lace.
The day was clear, thosuri shone brightly,
but the wind prevailed, and tho tempera
ture scarcely moderated all day. When I
had traveled a few miles, (in a e'eigh, of
courso.) my horso was white with frost,
icicles lour or fivo inches long were hang
ing to his nose, and my own beard was al
most a solid mass of ieo concealed Irom
my breath. ' And did you live?" O yes;
cauicwt unscathed, untouched by irost,
except my nose and ono car slightly; that
much might havo happened lurther
South.
To day is a perfect Greenlander. ' Mer
cury several degrees below zero all day,
considerable enow falling, and old Dorcas
howling like the furies. Snow has fallen
at different times io great abundance; aud
when it once falls it never melts until the
COxt Spring. We have nowabout two to two
and a half feet entirely too much for con
venient getting about. And then it so
badly drifted; it lies in a heap, four, tix,
or even eight feet deep in places. J toads
are frequently filled up, and a new track
must be broken through the fields. Muny
miles of our roadi hereabouts will be used
no more till April suns ahall molt the
snow. Our jailroad is sometimes blocka
ded for days together. The last time I
eaw tho train, the anow was thrown up
ward and right and left like an avalanche,
by a huge snow-plow, which was affection
ately urged forward by three engines
steaming and smoking unitedly like a
moving volcano with throe craters, -the
rear of the Imposing procession closed by
one louely passenger car. : "

From the Pnyion Lpljr-r,' February 15.
Tho New York World oftho 5th Inst.,
contain tho following: '
"Tho Democracy of tho Union expect of
their frloads in Ohio no tenderers in
dealing with Yollandigham, who publicly
and privately exulted over the dcfeit oft
Dcmoerntio Cong meinen, which he helped
to procure, and who publicly and privately
at onoo undertook to make that defeat a
weapon ogainst Ohio's favorite aon, Ocorgu
II. Pendleton."
Tho Democracy of Ohio expect tho New
York World to attend to its own busltu-M.
We do not recognizo that paper as the
mouth piece of tho Democratic party of
the Union. If tho cowardly time serving
i nd venal ronnrels of such papers as the
New York World had not been repudiated
and rcorncd by tho Democracy cf the
Great West in tunes past, wo would have
iiad no Democratic organization, other than
a mere demoralized banditti bound togeth
er only by tho cohesive power of public
plunder. ' "
Wo hope the Democratic press of Ohio
in rc'pouso to ' the exhortation " of tho
Woild, in' regard lo ti e manner of dealing
with 'Mr. Valldndigham, will henceforth
show no Icndirucrs in dealing with the
New ork World, whose bare trcuchcry in
this holo mailer is apparent fn tho fuel
that it is notoiiou.ily oppmcd to tho nom
ination of Gcotgo U. Pendleton vr uuy
titlur Wvftrrn man for tho Presidency.
Its purpose is at once malignant nnd
treacherous to destioy tho Influence of
YolluiidigliMtii, aud to defeat tho nomina
tion of Pendleton and yet tho piopiic
tera uV that paper liuvo the effrontery to
n?k FUppurt irom Iho Democracy of Ohio,
and the impuJeuco to till hat Ii expect
ed of us.
Wo can fell tho Vforld bat tho Demo-
cravy tif tho Union uay cxreot of ua.
They can expect, AVt of 11 what they
seek in vain lor in tho columns (file
New York Woild unfaltering Jldcli'y to
Iho principles nt.d orgtfiiization of tho
Democratic party. They may expect our
adherence and support in every rlFort to
restore tho Union under tho Constitution,
and in all measures designed to protect
the great wealth producing and laboring
iutcrcet of the country ogaint tho rapaci
ty and wily stratagems cf thoso who Keck
tu livo without labor, consumo without
producing, and to fid oll public plüCes
without deserving them. They may ex
pect of us, at the same lime, I tig repudia
tion ofthat whole brood of cowardly und
venul tiickMcr when have no other appre
ciation of tho Democratic organization
than aa a meana to secure thu honor and
emolument of tHice, ond the plunder of
partial legislation.
If it thill unfortunately bneomo np
parent to the Democracy of Ohio and of
tho West, that tho principles for which we
have struggled me to te betmyed, nnd
tho men who havo been faithful to them
repudiated; if tbo vital interests of this,
Iho t-eat (if American Kmpire, uro to be
sncrificud to the rapacity and exadions of
those who wish to Administer tho Govern
ment iu tho iutcic.-ts of a dun, nnd nut of
tho people, it may as well buv uudertood
first as last that tho Democratic party in
tho West will not. lend itself to the accom
plishment of such purposes.
Tho World claims that Mr. Yullandig
ham helped to procure the defeat of Colo-'
nel Hums. This is false it is as
fulso cs it would havo lieu hud
Mr. Yull-Midigtmm been in Fort
Warren, whero Colonel Hums nnd the
New York World would have been glnd to
havo hod Lincoln rend him in 18G-1.
Colonel Durns was asking tho support of
Democrats who voted for Itrnugh and
who felt disappointed, moreover, that
those Democrats who sympathised with
Colonel Durns und tho New York World
had just succeeded iu defeating Yullatidig
ham fr Uuitod States Senatorin placo of
Hen Wade, who had been denouncing him
ail ovcr Ohio, nt tho preccdiug election, as
a convicted traitor und un ust irant for his
tlace. Tho Dcmoctats of Colonel Durns'
Hstrict. however, like truo Democrats tl-e-wherc,
camo to his support manfully os the
regular nominated cai.didato of the Dem
ocratic Convention; unlike Colonel Durns,
however, in the Gubernatorial campaign of
1&G3, which did moro to vindicate the
pluck and manhood of the Democratic
party than any election that ever transpired
in tho United States.
Resides all thi, Gen. Restty fUnked
Gen. Durns on the bond question a ques
tion upon which tbo New York World
affects total blindness in looking to tho
causes of Col. Durus' defeat, and in its
anxiety to implicate Mr. Yallundigham'a
active complicity.
Dut ogain- tho WorlJ patronizingly
speaks of Mr. Pendleton as Ohio's favorite
son and yet thero is not a man anywhero
in tho United States tho World is more
anxioui to defeat for the Presidential nomi
nation than Georgo II. Pendleton. With
sinister and treacherous purposo it stabs
Yollandighan. that it may destroy Pcndlo
ton. e
It remain. to bo eecn whether this ami
able and manly syttem of tactics is to
prove Bucccshful. ,,
Now a word as to Mr. Yallandigham:
The New York. World ia no doubt well
acquainted with Mr. Yallandigham' pub
lic history and antecedents.
Its editor is probably not acquainted
with hiiu personally, otherwise he would
not have rpoken of luoi as a "vulgar poli
tician.' I hero are few men iu public lite
who devote moro time to systematic study
and intellectual pursuits than Mr. Yallau-
J ig ham. He is not only an alio lawyer, a
good claascial scholar, a well read historian,
but ho is thoroughly acquainted with, tbe
political history of tbia country, and the
current politics of the world.- lie has had
a large experience in public affairs. His
utterances upon public questions havo al
ways commanded" great otteution, andliow
ever much his couro las bceu condemned
by bis opponeuts, uo oue baj ever breath
ed a suspicion against his fidelity to hi
own honest convietions, or to the cardinal
principles of the Democratio faith. He
preserved and maintained that fidelity un
der circumstances which proved not only
his courage, but his wisdom and Matcsman
ship, and by fearlessly enforcing upon the
attention of tho people hi views of pub
lic duty and constitutional rights, as It
wos his undoubtcd right to do, he became
tho victim oft despotism as infamous and
unjustifiable aa ever waa imposed upon a
free people.
His bearing under theso clrcumatanccs
was courageous and manly. He told tbe
ofiiccra of the Southern Confederacy, that
ho came among them not of his own 'free
will, but compelled by superior force, and
that he had no sympathy with their effort
to divide the Union and establish a South
ern Confederacy. He found his way, not
through the violation of any parole or oth
er obligation, to Cunada, and while there,
tho Democracy of Ohio, true tu their in
stinct of manhood and against the timid
counsels of the very men who atill take
couofd from policy instead of principle,
nominated liiiu wilh unprecedented est
Ihusiann for Governor of Ohio. All ' re
member tho incident of that memorable
campaign, in which the Hon. George - K.
Pugh boro himself so gallantly, and placed
the Democracy of Ohio under an obliga
tion that haa never been canceled. .
Mr. Yallandigham, in due titer, return
ed upon his own rosponsibity to bis home
andjliM alli'y from re-arrest wee due in
a great measure to the courugo which tho
Democratic party hod shown ia the prece
ding political campaign.
. Since that time ho has not been a can
didate, but ha been prominently before
the public, aud has exerted hi whole pow
er and influence to promote the ascendancy
of Democratic principles and Ihe restora
tion of (ho Union. Ho has contributed
nt least s much as any one man in the
United Slates lo maintain tho integrity and
purity of tbe Deuu i ratic organization, and
wo can tay lo the New York World, and
to it -a sympathizer, that there ate a thou
sand fcound Democrats in every part of the
United Statea who will stand ty C L.
Yallandigham, whero they will find ono
who will approve tlicir attacks on him.
If is simply silly for the New York
World to talk of Yallandigham as a traitor
in the Democratic ramp, id expect to write
him down, or read l.iiu out of the Duuio-
cnitie rr'J-
If such men os VaWanillhsni end l is

LETTER FROM HARRISON.
II AnitlsON, Feb. Sill,
Jh'iir Auu-rtwiiii I inn very glad in
deed that I fornished an article for your
column, os it gave fi tend Perry" pitch
a nice chance to bo 'cute; for instance, he
; rays that ho cannot
ngieo wilh
e os to
! tho color of thut little
at'imal. I would
nsk him to do one favor for tue, via: toll
tho name of that littlo animal bo alludes
to. He says it's green. I think bo mutt
-
have been silling opposite a mirror wl
he wrote U lastorticle, fr that's the
hen
Olf-
Iv way I can account for this peculiar col
or, lie offers mo his hand, which I ac
cept; but I cannot say so much for bis
tongue, unless put to better uso than it
has been lately.
He thinks I am trying to pleose nil tho
different churches of this place, and fie it
riyht, for. I think this can be done by
simply living up to a good old rule, viz:
speak ill of no one, and if others spoak
ill of you, live so as lo disprove it. Though
I am npt immediately connected with any
church at this time, I would blush for
shamo to write anything about any church
in this or any other place that would in
the least laar its progress. He says that
he thinks teo well of the literary cause to.
do anything that would bo an injury to it.
I think he would do equally well if he
had the fa mo respect for his God, and
when bo writea on this subject say noth
ing but what will be beneficial to this one
great and too much neglected cause
. I have nothing to take back concern
ing our free schools being good, for there
has been a decided improvement in them
sinco friend "Perry V departure as one of
authority in our midst. I am not much
on a debate, ond sarcasm is a stranger to
me; therefore I do not wish to carry on a
war of words. Hut I wLll say a few words
about our city.
This week has been noted for its littlo
incidents and accidents. On a certain
evening of last wek, as one of our worthy
citizen was leaving the ofllco of Dr. Dol
lahan, he made a false step, which prectp
itatcd him down a flight of steps, break
ing his collar bone. Also, an aged lady
of thia place is now suffering from a dis
located knee. i i
Dut before I closo, 1 wish to aay some
thing about the Fire Deportment of Har
rison. On Wednesdsy last there wsa an
alarm of fire given. Tho Hook and Lad
der Co. was coon on the ground with their
wagon, but the buckets belonging thereto
wero safely locked up io the Kogina
llouso, (Town Hall,) and were only ob.
taiood by the proocsa of.scalation. 'A
certain youth noted for bia acilUy, climb
ed up and immortalized himself by paniog
tbcui down to tbo ' aforesaid. Company.
Tic Cro woe soon extinguished, none be
iug sccu have that iu the stove, and tbe
members of the Fire Department TCturned
borrfe eatisSed In' their own ttinds ibat
they had saved the towa from ose general
conflagration. The damage to the prop
erty did tot exceed $23, caused fiiirelj
by ax and water.
...For .tbe present I will elosef bopin-j tflj
hear something about the great Lesn Year
Party In your next, if ' Perry" will be ro
good aa to give a aeoe-unt of it. Yours
respectfully - -Hill 1 aixwrLr.
